Friendship with Jesus Christ
The second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity is Jesus, the Son of God become Man. He came into the world to save us. But also, Jesus came into the world to establish a deep, dynamic, and permanent Friendship with us.
The Bible says that to find a true friend indeed is a treasure. Of all the friends that could exist in this world, friendship with Jesus is by far the best! He is the Friend that will never fail us.

Jesus, be my best Friend now, tomorrow, and for all eternity. Amen.
